Take Better Photographs With Fill In Flash

The first time that I heard a comment about my pictures and my use of fill in flash, I had no idea what my photographer friend was talking about. So I just smiled and acted like I knew what he was talking about. Not being one to be left in the dark, though, I decided to do my homework.

Water Spouts – Are You Ready?

So I was on my way to begin shooting for my 2008 Dogs of Key West Calendar and off to my right I spotted two water spouts.

Photographing Black Dogs

A better title might be, "Can you find the dog in this picture?" You would be amazed at how many times we can wind up with a photo of a black dog where the bushes or shadows behind him cause him to magically disappear just as you try to get that shot of him looking absolutely adorable.

Forme cut postcards are a great way to advertise something as they are far more exciting to look at than a traditional rectangular shape.
